Wayland Baptist University, in partnership with the Flying Queens Museum and the Hutcherson Flying Queens Foundation is launching permanent, on-going project that will advance and enhance the history of the Flying Queens basketball program.

The Flying Queens Oral History Project will gather and preserve the history of the Flying Queens women’s basketball team by means of digitally-recorded interviews of players, coaches, boosters, fans, university administrators, and other pertinent individuals.

Dr. Rebekah Crowe, dean of the School of Behavioral & Social Sciences and professor of history, is heading up the project. Recordings and transcripts resulting from such interviews become the property of Wayland Baptist University and will be preserved and maintained by the Flying Queens Museum. The Foundation will have access to player’s stories for placement on its website, flyingqueensfoundation.com.

The Foundation also will assist in publicizing the project and encouraging former players, coaches and others to participate.
